Live Stream for Radio2Funky Project

As a community radio station in Leicester, we are always looking to connect with our audiences and gain new listeners through innovative ways. This is why Radio2Funky decided to fundraise for new equipment and services that would enable the station to live stream, giving our audiences a first-hand look at the studio and interact with our DJs / Presenters.

This would mean that audiences would be able to take part in the stream via online messaging, allowing them to take part in live discussions, live competitions, and request shout-outs. We want to give audiences as much input as possible.

Fortunately, in May 2022, we met out target receieving just over £1400 with 13 backers, supporting our mission. 

This means:

✨ Radio2Funky 95FM will have the tools to live stream shows via their website & on social media. 

✨ The live stream will be available for free to the Leicester community & beyond.

✨ Radio2Funky audiences will be able to interact with their favourite DJs / Presenters through live messaging/competitions.

Why it's a great idea:

This project will benefit a wide variety of diverse communities in the Leicester area. It will allow audiences to interact further with Radio2Funky, providing a wider reach to people interested in Black music and art.

This project will also directly benefit all of our DJs/Presenters who broadcast on Radio2Funky. We have a large roster of DJs/Presenters that will be given a new platform to share their voice and creativity, promoting talent in the Leicester area.
